Alexander Ovechkin is a star. He’s a big, bright, shining, Australopithecus-looking star. I love the guy; he’s great for the NHL and a nice dash of cream in the Chocolate City that is the District of Columbia. Alex also is great for that uneven blacktop on 6th Avenue in New York City. Here he is driving a zamboni around the Big Apple for a trip that Dan Steinberg was good enough to point out was actually only one city block. But at least that block is really smooth now. I’m sure all the homeless people urinating onto it later in the day will appreciate that. via.
